You can use Flat to share your sheet music and collaborate in real-time with other people on your music notation projects. Start to choose a privacy level for your creation, then invite other collaborators. You can also publish your scores on our platform, or embed them on other websites.
Sharing settings for a score can be adjusted on the Library page and in the Editor.
Collaborate or share a score with someone
In the sharing settings, you can add multiple other Flat users to work with you on a score. You will be able to edit the same document at the same time, or separately if you want to. Three levels of permissions are available when sharing a score with someone:
- Can read: The other Flat user will be able to open the score and use inline comments to give feedback.
- Can write: The other Flat user will be able to edit the score, but won’t be able to change the sharing settings or delete it.
- Can admin: The other Flat user will have complete access to the score, including changing sharing settings and deleting it.
Privacy levels & Sharing mode
Every document on Flat has a privacy level that you can change on the Library page or the Editor. You can use the following privacy levels with any Flat account:
- Private: Only you can read and modify your score.
- Private sharing link: Similar to private, but the score will have a private and read-only link. You can disable and change this private link when you want, just make the score private.
- Public: Your sheet music is public on the Internet.
Only with a Flat for Education account:
- Public in the organization: Only the logged user from your School will have access to your sheet music in read-only.
